Sam safe from trio's votes
John James, Rachel and David have been banned from nominating Sam for eviction from the 'Big Brother' house next week
Three 'Big Brother' housemates have been banned from nominating Sam for eviction next week.
David, John James and Rachel were punished after joking they would vote for the newcomer to get the boot at the first available opportunity.
Big Brother played the footage back to the housemates before announcing: "As a result of predicting that Sam will be nominated, Dave, John James and Rachel are forbidden from nominating Sam next week."
After seeing the footage Sam admitted that he felt singled out by the other housemates and worried that he would be a constant target for nominations.
He said: "From when I got in the house I've felt I am going to be up for nomination every week."
However David later said that Sam couldn't be surprised if he was nominated as he was such a strong personality.
Speaking about the 21-year-old graffiti artist he said: "He's come in here both guns blazing. he can't do this thing like he is a little lamb going to the slaughter."
Sam has continually upset Bristolian Josie during his time in the house, by making comments about her relationship with John James and saying it should be "illegal" for her to wear a swimming costume.
However, hunky former bodybuilder John James admits he would vote to keep Sam in for the entertainment value if he were a viewer.
He said: "I'd definitely vote for him, to keep him in, because he is winding everyone up."
Andrew agreed saying "This house went from being boring on TV to being dead interesting."
